3 Tips for Learning From Mistakes

Nobody likes making mistakes. It is human nature to make mistakes. If you go through life afraid to make a mistake, you’ll spend most of your life doing absolutely nothing. There is no harm in making mistakes, it is an essential part of learning. If you feel the need to avoid mistakes at all costs, it becomes a psychological barrier to taking risks.

Learning from your mistakes is one of the greatest personal achievements you can make. From your own mistakes you can gain wisdom and accelerate self-improvement. Mistakes, because of their relationship with risk taking, are essential to success. The important thing is to view mistakes as a useful stepping stone to a higher confidence and a broader perspective.

Here are 3 tips for handling mistakes:

1. View the mistake as another attempt to the solution

Don't let mistakes depress or discourage you. We must realize that depression and discouragement are negatives that limit the future. Instead let it help you to be more determined to solve the issue.

2. Admit the mistake

Now this takes courage, but recognition of errors is a sign of maturity. When we don’t recognize them, it is denying them. The reality is that denying the mistake only allows the mistake to take root and grow, it's something that will limit your future.

3. Know that it’s only when you ignore the mistake that it is negative

When we confront mistakes, when we look it square in the eye, we can take full advantage of it as "positive" and you will benefit from the mistake.

Remember, mistakes are a part of life. If you cruise through life avoiding risks, you’ll likely never grow in meaningful ways. Mistakes don’t halt your momentum; they help you figure out a better path. Progress won't be a straight line but if you keep learning you will have more successes than failures, and the mistakes you make along the way will help you get to where you want to go.
